Interesting. I just tried it again, running on Linux using image version
'Squeak3.7beta of ''1 April 2004'' [latest update: #5868]'. I consistently
get the out-of-memory crash in Morphic, but things work correctly in MVC.
Well, not quite correctly, there is a horrible bug when traversing from
the MVC project back to a Morphic project in which I get a red screen of
death on some tabs in the Morphic project - but that would be the topic
of a separate thread, and it appears unrelated to the low memory notifier

Overall, we are seeing inconsistent behavior that is possibly dependent
on timing and phase of the moon. This one might be tricky to debug.
